Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack In Use

The Yakima HoldUp is a premium, tray-style bike rack that lets you carry 2 bikes using your vehicle's hitch. This rack is specifically designed to carry bikes with big tires and wide handlebars, but it will carry just about any bike, including those with wheels from 20" to 29", carbon frames, disc brakes, thru axles, or full suspensions.

Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Large Front Wheel Holders

The HoldUp is easy to load, even if your bikes have monster wheels. The deep, contoured front wheel cradles accommodate just about any wheel out there, and the pivoting arms with StrongArm technology ensure that your bikes are held firmly in place.

Note: Not recommended for use on bikes with front fenders.

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Ratcheting Arm

To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the holder, rotate the pivoting arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook. To release the hook, simply press the built-in red button and slide the hook up and off your wheel.

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Adjustable Rear Wheel Cradles

Large rear wheel holders allow the HoldUp to accommodate a wide variety of bike wheelbases. These wheel holders pivot front to back, adjusting automatically to your wheel size - no need for sliding and tightening. Secure the wheels in place with the ratcheting straps built into each holder.

Yakima HoldUp Ratcheting Arm No Frame Contact

Mounting bikes by the wheels helps prevent any scratches or scuffs to the paint. The ratcheting hooks are padded, however, so they won't mark your wheels. And the pivot mechanisms in the arms are overbuilt to ensure they keep functioning smoothly over a lifetime of hard use.

Fully Adjustability Bike Trays

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Adjustable Bike Trays

The wheel trays on the HoldUp are fully adjustable to ensure that you have all the space you need when mounting bikes with mammoth handlebars, such as a 29er. To adjust a wheel tray, loosen the 4 bolts where the tray attaches to the rack base and slide the tray left or right to achieve the desired spacing. Retighten the bolts and you're ready to roll with optimum handlebar clearance and no fear of bike-to-bike contact during transport.

Complete Security

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Built-in Cable Locks

The HoldUp has a cable lock built into the end of each pivoting arm. These cables loop through your bike frames and attach to posts on the bike rack arms to secure your bikes in place. The cables store in the arms when not in use.

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Locking Hitch Pin

The rack also has a HitchLock hitch pin that allows you to lock the rack to your vehicle. The threaded pin also works as an anti-rattle device to reduce noise and movement of the rack when it's mounted in your trailer hitch receiver.

The cable locks and HitchLock hitch pin include keyed-alike Same Key System (SKS) lock cores. These cores can be swapped out to make all your Yakima products keyed alike.

Tilting Design and Compact Storage

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Folded for Storage

The HoldUp stores more compactly than similar platform-style racks, and features a spring-loaded pin at the base that lets you fold the rack up against the rear of your vehicle when it's not in use. First rotate the front wheel holders inward and tilt the rear wheel holders inward, then rotate the pivot arms down and use the ratcheting hooks to secure the arms to the rear wheel holders. Once the arms are in place, pull the pin and fold the rack up against your vehicle.

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Tilted for Rear Cargo Access

The same pin tilts the rack down, while fully loaded, so you can gain access to your vehicle's rear cargo area without having to unload your bikes.

Optional 2-Bike Add-On

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack 2 Bike Add-on

There is a 2-bike add-on available (Y02446 - sold separately) for the HoldUp that will allow you convert it from a 2-bike carrier to a 4-bike carrier. To install the add-on on your HoldUp, simply remove the endcap from the bike rack base, slide the add-on's shank into the hole on the bike rack, and secure the shank with a bolt that comes with the add-on.

Works well for transporting two 29" wheeled mountain bikes. However, after one year it's starting to rust in several areas (see attached photos), and the front wheel arms are becoming increasingly difficult to raise and lower. Finally the locking cable is extremely rusty as you can see in the attached photo. I'm not sure how durable this rack will be long term.

This has a limited lifetime warranty but rust is not covered under warranty. With most aftermarket products like this one, it will need taken off when not in use, lubricated often, and filed and repainted once you noticed rust forming. Here are some tips in this attached article:



One year later and the rack frame continues to rust and deteriorate. It has been removed during the winter and when not in use and lubricated per etrailers previous comment but this did not slow down the rust.


We have had this bike rack for one year and use it every week-end. My wife has a Trek e-bike (52 lbs) and I have a regular Trek hybrid (23 lbs). The rack is very sturdy and I have no issues driving at highway speeds, there is no movement of the bikes. Very easy to load and unload.


It's quite expensive bike rack which made in China with problematic quality control.

I have to disassemble one of the bike bases in order to remove the metal shavings inside of the end of the arm which were interfering with cable lock preventing it get fully retracted into the tube.

Inside tube, there are no coating and metal started to rust already. If you leave it mounted on vehicle and this thing gets into the rain, this will greatly accelerate the rusting process. And rusting is not covered by warranty as stated in different post. So you warned...

When I told etrailer about the quality problems... Customer support answer was hilarious. Quote from Odelia K. : "I am sorry but I do not know where you may be able to order this for shipping to the UK."

Btw, they just shipped my order to GA, USA... where did I mention UK?
I have unpleasant experience with I would not recommend it.

I have not seen this metal shaving problem before. I do see that customer service is in contact with you to replace this item. Also, it sounds like Odelia mixed up her emails. I apologize for the confusion.


Sturdy, locking pin tightens to dampen sway.



Works great. Zero issues.


Seems well built the only thing that was cheap was the straps to hold the wheels. Had one broke when arrived.


The bike rack exceeded my expectations! Well-designed and sturdy , yet not so heavy that I couldn't install it on my vehicle myself. Also E-trailer delivered the product as quickly as promised.

Entirely disagree with the light enough comment- I purchased the 2 2 version and it has to weigh the most awkward 125 lbs Ive ever carried. Pay the extra $$ and get the KUAT aluminum version. Makes it even more of a PITA when trying to lift it up to vertical. Takes two people and cannot expect my wife and 7 yr old to manhandle it. Enginerds should have used a coil spring to assist with the lift. Also- after owning for 8 months, theres significant pooled corrosion i.e. orangered liquid oozes from every nook/cranny after a rain. They clearly did not protect the interior and expect that very soon the powdercoating will give way to flaking leafs of corroded metal. A huge shame for something that set me back so much $$$.KUAT- lighter and wont rust!

Bill S.


I spent nearly $800 for the 2 up with plus 2. Light enough, maybe if you only use the 2 bike version, it weighs over 50 lbs. I have the older grey 2 up along with the 2 plus making it hold 4 bikes. Combined they weigh about 100 lbs. No way one person can put the receiver in the hole. Very difficult for one person to raise up the unit from horizontal also. Two different size wrenches needed to take on and off bike as I have to remove the plus 2 first, 34 wrench then a 15/16 is needed on hitch. The plus 2 also does not come with a lock to secure it to the 2 up or a cable to lock the bikes to the rack. You will need to purchase them separately, another $50. I have also had two of the arms fail in a little over a year now, they have a lifetime warrantee but that gets old replacing them.Rack does hold bikes very good, but I am not happy overall with my purchase. Other models out there for this kind of money take a look.


This is a great rack and extremely well made. The consumer assembly is only the two cross arms with two bolts each. I debated between this and a similar Thule. The cable with integrated lock and the lockable hitch pin sold me on this one. I have two K2 29'ers and they fit well in the tire saddles. The pivot arm locks down tight on the front wheel as does the strap on the rear wheel making the bikes are very stable for traveling. The large threaded hitch pin dampen all the slop in the hitch receiver. The only con I have is the 20 degree fold down does not allow my 2009 Town & Country rear hatch to fully open. This may not be a problem with other vehicles. For all the pros on this rack I can live with the con.


It only took a couple of days for the rack t arrive after I ordered it. I was impressed how sturdy the rack is. My wife rides a Trek Townie E-bike which is heavy (48 lbs) that I needed a sturdy rack to carry it in addition to mine. My hanging rack in no way would handle the weight (Total with all the gear, 70 lbs). My new rack handled it easily.

This rack has some nice features that I looked for in a good rack. It was easy to put together and install on my car. It is fairly heavy but fits perfectly in my 2" hitch. With all the bikes loaded, there isn't any sway or movement with the rack as I drive. The rack sits nice and tight in the receptor. It has security locks that make hauling bikes a safe and secure experience.

The cost was a little higher than I wanted to spend but I was glad I did. I know I bought a great product that will last for many years of riding. I highly recommend this rack to anyone looking for a quality rack for their bikes.


Just received my Yakama 2 bike rack for my 2012 VW Tiguan. It is very well built and simple to install. I especially like how it folds up close to the car when not in use. The rack is not heavy like the Rola that I had before this one. This was my second purchase from e-trailer and will definitely buy from them again. The staff is so friendly and eager to help. The web site is incredible, with install videos on the products.


I was excited to finally get the bike rack after a long back order...but it was well worth the wait ! It took my husband and I about 35 minutes to assemble it. It was very easy. I had been having to lift my bike in and out of my truck bed and it was taxing on my back. I have used it everyday since installing it and love it. Thank you to the Customer Service department for being so nice when I called several times for updates on my order.


Great service and quick delivery. I haven’t used it yet because of the cold weather but my best friend has the exact same one and loves it. Like the fact that it can lock the bikes in and lock the rack to your vehicle. Plus the slant down feature makes it easy to load e bikes. Would definitely recommend trailer to anyone looking for an awesome bike rack!



Works great! Took a few minutes to get just right the very first time. After that a breeze. It’s very secure with the bikes on and off. Don’t worry about the bikes or the rack being stolen.


Love my Yakima rack. Now I can take two bikes and all my fishing and camping gear on all my adventures. Thank you etrailer for tye great service.


I purchased the hitch and bike rack from you guys for my wife's 2021 Nisssan Rogue. The instructions were easy to follow. Also, seeing the videos online helped a whole bunch. The end result was amazing... Will continue doing business with etrailer


I just got an e-bike, but didn't have a rack for it. I only had a hanging bike rack for my cruiser. I borrowed this from a friend and immediately knew this was the rack I had to have!! It's so easy to install and very sturdy. It's so easy to load my bikes too; way easier than my hanging bike rack. I would recommend this rack to anyone with any type of bike and it's at a great price point compared to all the others. I like that it bolts on and locks. The only thing I would change is for it to sway down a little in case you want to open the tailgate or hatch. That being said it's super easy to load/unload bikes if needed so it's did not affect my decision and is not a big deal at all. LOVE IT!!!


This rack is your best bet if you’re looking for an economical and quality platform rack. The comparable Thule and Kuat models do not have an integrated lock system like the Yakima. It was very simple to assemble and even easier to hitch up and load my bike. Works great with a Tacoma. I used to have a hanger-style rack and this platform is far superior.


Just finished installing my new rack. I am VERY happy with the rack from installation to loading and unloading the bikes. Also I was very impressed with etrailer. I was looking for a specific rack and and only knew of one company that offered a rack that could be expanded to hold 2 more bikes. I was about to make my purchase of the very expensive other brand when etrailer suggested I look at the Yakima. I was very impressed with their videos and could see how the rack fit on my car so I purchased the rack and everything was exactly like they explained. I look forward to using this rack for a very long time.


Really glad I found your web site before I decided on my E bike rack. The Yakima holdup rack I purchased is a quality item and has really nice features for a good price.

I like the fact that it clamps down on the tire to hold it tight. I also like the way the rack moves down to load and unload the bikes. It takes a lot of load off my back. The locks ore outstanding as well. This rack has everything I needed. Thank you Ashley for your help when I ordered it.

Really good company and staff.

I have had my Yakima bike rack over 1 year now. It is still delivering all that I had expected in a bike rack. It has helped me ride my Bike over 1000 miles in that year. I, Still, highly recommend this bike rack to anyone that has an Ebike and wants to take it to new places to ride.



After a year and over 1000 miles ridden, my Yakima Ebike rack has worked perfectly for me. I have not had any issues or concerns with my rack carrying our bikes safely. It is a well built product. Kudos to Yakima. Ken from Downey, Ca.


A well made bike carrier. It holds 2 bikes securely. The locking hitch bolt and locking bike cables also give it security. It is a little heavy to to move around, but I assume most are.



Happy to have it.


After one year of ownership I don't see much wear a most buttons, locks and fittings remain tight and solid. No rust to speak of yet.
The only gripe I have is when the unit is folded up and not in use it can rattle when stopping and starting the car. This is the reason why I am giving it 4 stars.

Lastly, one thing to keep in mind with this product is that it covers your license plate and will also block your backup camera. It's a little annoying but I don't see how we can avoid blocking the camera so I can't complain too much.


Love this product so far! I’m using this with the Yakima Backswing for my 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU. Makes loading and unloading a breeze and uninhibited access to the rear hatch. Installation was a breeze. Sturdy set up that also looks good!


Awesome. Easy to load and unload.



Great made two trips to Floridawith my 2 ebikes in tow. Strong snd steady.wish there was a way to store. They are akward when lying down and no way to hang them .any ideas

A good space saving rack for your e bike would be part # B-SRFR-001. Once leaded it swings to the side to save as much room as possible and it is simple to load and unload your bike.


Great bike rack. Bought a new RAV 4 and needed the rack ASAP for a bike benefit in Milwaukee. Ordered it on Tuesday, got it on a Thursday left for Milwaukee on Friday. Highly recommend ETRAILER for their exceptional advice and follow up.


One year out - no complaints; a great, stable, easy to use bike rack. I am pushing 72 and not as strong from the waist up as I used to be, but have no trouble handling this rack. Just remember that the bolt goes in from the right side, opposite from my previous Thule rack. eTrailer has always given me good service and prices.


Love my rack. Customer service expertly answered all my questions and pointed me to the best bike rack for me. The Yakima rack looks great. It’s built great. It folds, it tilts, it locks, I love it and I’m usually very critical. And it was delivered free in like two days. I love that it still fits in the garage when it’s folded upright.


It's too bad that more products these days were not of such high quality and so well thought out as this Yakima bike carrier. It looks really great on our Chevy Express.I love that I don't have to go out and buy anything extra like locks, hitch pins, etc.Having this product will leave the inside of our van open for other things like our big beautiful dog! And placing and securing the bikes just could not be easier.Thanks again for this piece of excellence.

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch-Mount No-Touch Bike Rack Options for 2005 Toyota RAV4
    You are right that a 2-inch Class III hitch is a better choice than a 1-1/4-inch size for use with a bike rack on the back of your 2005 Toyota Rav4. You will not only get higher tongue weight capacity from a Class III hitch but the 2-inch receiver size means more options in bike racks styles and features.

It has a 65 lbs per bike capacity which is the largest for a class I hitch and it tilts away for access to your cargo area or trunk.

    The Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 is a wheel mount bike rack which cannot be used with bikes that have fenders.

    The Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 will work just fine on a 2017 Subaru Legacy so long as you have a 2" trailer hitch, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13390 is what I recommend for this. I took a look at the Curt hitch and confirmed you won't have any issues using this with the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack. If you need help with installation, I have attached a video of this for you. Please note, if you already have a trailer hitch with 1-1/4" receiver tube opening such as...

  • Platform Bike Rack Solutions for a 2003 Toyota 4Runner to Clear Spare
    An ideal solution for you would be to use a hitch mounted bike rack on your 2003 Toyota 4Runner that has a longer shank, so that your Yakima Holdup Bike Rack part # Y02443 will clear the spare. Another solution you have would be to use a hitch extender like part # HE06. This will provide you with 7 additional inches of clearance so that your bike rack would clear. However, when using this extension the capacity of your hitch tongue weight is cut in half. Please make sure that you still...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2022 Honda CR-V
    I recommend installing the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13397 on your 2022 Honda CR-V because it is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and a thicker powder coat; all of which means that you'll be able to use more accessories and the hitch will withstand road debris better than other options. I have attached an installation video as well as a photo showing this installed on a 2021 CR-V for you to check out. If you don't already have a bike rack then I recommend checking out the Yakima HoldUp...

  • Options to Mount Bikes on 2021 Chevrolet Blazer That Do Not Block Review Camera
    For the easiest to use solution I would still go with the hitch mounted bike rack and just live without having a completely unobstructed view with the camera, because the alternatives are problemsome. A "trunk mounted" bike rack does not position the bikes any better. The SeaSucker suction cup mounts will not work properly in the back as there is not a flat area where the rear tires would go. If you must use the camera unobstructed then this leaves you a roof mount option. You should...

  • Can the Yakima HoldUp Be Used On a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited with the Yakima BackSwing
    Yes, the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 and the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 Bike Rack part # Y02479 will work with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender part # Y02483. I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima for you. They have tested these together which is why they are able to confirm fit. The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender part PV20B is no longer available but you could still use the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # NV22B with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away...

  • How to Convert Yakima HoldUp for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receivers to Fit 2 Inch Hitch Receivers
    The Hitch Adapter # Y8890174 is for the Flipside, DoubleDown, and StickUp bike carriers. It's a direct replacement part for the adapter that was included with those racks. The HoldUp doesn't have a model that fits both a 1-1/4 inch and a 2 inch using an adapter. It has two different models, one for 2 inch hitches, # Y02443, and one for 1-1/4 inch hitches, # Y02445. To convert the HoldUp from a 1-1/4 inch to a 2 inch you can replace the spine using # 8890277. Or to convert it the other...

  • Best Bike Rack for 2 e-Bikes on Flat Towed Vehicle
    All 3 bike racks are excellent choices but I have to go with the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack # Y36FR hands down for your situation simply because your Lectric XP 2.0 bikes should have fenders on the front tires which disqualifies the Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV and Yakima HoldUp # Y02443 as they use clamps that secure over the front tire where the fender will be located. The OnRamp uses a clamp system that wraps around the frame of the bike so fenders aren't an issue. Some extra perks of the...
